The department of Sociology offers three different graduate degree tracks in sociology: (1) Master of Science, Non-Thesis Option; (2) Master of Science, Thesis Option; and (3) Doctor of Philosophy. Our Ph.D. Students have been placed in many fine colleges and institutions. Those students who have earned Master's degrees at MSU have also been well placed in a variety of professional settings. Students, in conjunction with the faculty, tailor-made their program of study at MSU. These programs are only offered on MSU's Starkville campus; we have no distance graduate education in sociology.
